Some good news to add!

Just wanted to share my exciting news - which will bring me an extremely busy rest-of-the-year, esp if I've got to somehow fit in a return to full-time work ...

Anyway I've managed to book a stall at a Christmas Craft Fair (at the beginning of November) to sell my jewellery at!!! This is an extremely popular fair, barely room to move, and in aid of a local hospice (which is close to my heart as my grandpa was looked after by them before he died in 1992) which in my opinion is a very good cause!

So my mum (also a jewellery maker and VERY good dressmaker, specialising in bridal and special occasion wear using 100% silk - please get in contact if this is of any interest to you and you have a need!!!) and I will be getting busy making new items using our new semi-precious stones, and we also want to stock up on some lovely new lampwork beads we've been eyeing up on various websites - so going to be making some special stuff and bumping up our prices!!! Wish us luck ....

And fingers crossed that my fabby mate Emma (mrs giraffe's bloggy) will get a stall secured at this event too to sell her lush cards ... in case you hadn't guessed we live locally to each other ... as in 3 doors away!!! lol

Good luck with the return to full time work and at least you have plenty of time to prepare for the craft fair.
